Jam Filled Butter Cookies


3/4 cup butter, softened                      1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup white sugar                              2 egg yolks   

1/2 cup Ruk's Preserves Pineapple Jam, (or any flavor)




Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). 

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar, and egg yolks. Mix in flour a little bit at a time until a soft dough forms. Roll dough into 1 inch balls.

(If dough is too soft, refrigerate for 15-20 minutes) 

Place cookie balls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Use your finger to make a well in the center of each cookie. Fill the hole with 1/2 tsp. of preserves. 

Bake for 8-10 minutes in a preheated oven until golden brown on the bottom. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.  

Yield: 36 servings
